I'm a Japanese localize engineer who ususally receives a
source (Engilsh) project created in X5
and has to localize it in X3, the latest Japanese version of
In these kinds of localizing scenarios, is there any way to
degrade the project from X5 to X3 properly
so that the project could be localized preserving the source
settings such as skins and other important
My localizing process used to begin with opening an X5
project in X3 from its hhp, not xpj (since
xpj is a new file extention introduced in X5) but now I have
found that in X3 the project-related files
would be loaded into the project according to the ppf file
while they would be loaded according to
the fpj file in X5.
This would cause a problem because an X5 project usually
contains an old ppf file and this would
generate inconsistency from the source project if the project
is to be localized in X3.
I have tried to re-create a new ppf file for X3 from a fpj
but looked like it didn't work.
So if anyone knows anything or has the same experience,
please let me know.
